Swallowed By the Cracks

Sixteen Stories of the Spaces Between

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

HERE TODAY, GONE TOMORROW... Life is fleeting. Things happen quickly. One moment you're at the office, or maybe sitting in your living room; more of the same old, same old. And the next...You're gone. Forever. 

For the brave, Dark Arts Books presents sixteen tales of those sudden moments when life goes from light to dark, laughing to screaming, bad to worse. Scary to...unspeakable. 

Four of horror's brightest talents light up the corners, illuminate the shadows and show you ready or not what's there in the dark, where if you're not careful, you might end up SWALLOWED BY THE CRACKS. 

Once again, Dark Arts Books has assembled a killer lineup of top-notch talent and they have delivered some amazing stories! 

Bram Stoker-Award winning author Lee Thomas shares emotionally-devastating tales spanning the Victorian-Steampunk era ("The Dodd Contrivance") to the newest terror trawling Internet chat rooms ("Appetite of the Cyber Tribes") and more. 

Gary McMahon, drawing favorable comparisons to Ramsey Campbell in his native England, shows just why in tales ranging from feverish nightmares ("The Ghost in You") to coldly-calculated terror ("Creep") and everything in between. 

S.G. Browne, fresh from the success of his ingenious novels BREATHERS and FATED, explores male sexual fantasies run amok in "Dream Girls," science run amok in "Dr. Lullaby," a charming small town run amok in "Lower Slaughter," and, perhaps most terrifying, a writer run amok in "Lord of Words." 

Michael Marshall Smith shows why he is an international sensation with pieces ranging thought-provoking ("REMTemps") to horrifying ("What Goes on in Their Minds") to whimsical ("Dave 2 Beta 2"). 

Another hugely enjoyable collection of the best dark fiction writing by today's most talented authors, courtesy of your friends at Dark Arts Books.
